MYKITA KARSTEN is a rectangle shaped frame made of ultra-light stainless steel and features a patented spiral hinge and silicone temple tips and nose pads. This frame is part of the N0 1 collection.
Collection NO1 laid the foundation for MYKITA. Fashioned from stainless steel sheets, the frames are made into a three-dimensional structure through a series of bending and folding steps, similar to the Japanese art of origami. The modern principle behind the openly displayed spiral hinge represents the design approach that has informed all subsequent MYKITA collections: the technical solution must also be an aesthetic one.
